independent cop film should be more recognized
24 March 2003 | by (san francisco california) – See all my reviews

Dead aim is a very intense/suspensful cop thriller that is fun. Ed marinaro's role as det. malcolm douglas plays a very dedicated role as the police officer, who is on the line between justice and revenge. Mace who is douglas's nick name is fighting between two gang's taking place in atlanta, georgia, one russian gang led by Harry Goz's character androsov is very interesting. and his right hand man Epi Flexnor, played by character actor rick washburn was very intense. and of couirse the cool gang led by Jamal played by Isaac Hayes was fun, to see him with an accent. mace is caught in between two worlds of gangs. he also investigates the murder's of the herion overdoses of a few exotic dancers. the film's supporting cast also includes, Corbin Bernsen(la law, Major league) william sanderson (blade runner) , john hancock and william windom star in this film. later in the film, it get's more disturbing to what happens to the featured characters. there some action scenes, but is fit to be a police drama. this film was very realistic, intense cop film that people may enjoy, if they like cop films. the film is very short, it should have been a little longer, and the ending is a little confusing and surprising. i like those kind of endings for films of all categories, cause, you get to make it up your own ending. Mace is also a lonesome cop with out any partner. who also falls in love with exotic dancer amber played by cassandra gava. at times mace could be very sypithetic cop. this film is recommended if you can find it. it is only on VHS. i hope one of these days it will be on DVD. this film was also never released in theatres. very independent. it is very hard to find in video stores.
